Eric Schmidt in German Tabloid

Bild, Germany’s biggest tabloid (disliked by many German intellectuals for its often hyped reporting) is running a multi-part interview with Google CEO Eric Schmidt this week. In the piece published today, Eric Schmidt was asked about mobile phones, censorship and more. Some points of interest (quotes are with my translation & emphasis):

All in all Eric paints a very rosy picture of the web, e.g. saying that around the globe all people are people are able to voice their opinion online, when actually doing so can get you jailed in some countries. Also, the transparency online coverage brings is not always followed up by actual real-world change.
